Blood Microfilaria Test DETAILS
A method for diagnosing active microfilaria infection, involving microscopic examination of the blood smear to identify the existence of microfilariae in the blood.
Our Blood Microfilaria Test basically involves the collection of a blood sample for microscopic examination of blood smear. Usually, a microfilariae blood test is conducted at night or very early hours of the morning to coincide with the appearance of microfilariae. The microfilaria test procedure requires a blood sample either from the finger prick, earlobe or venous blood. To perform this test you will need to visit your laboratory of choice to make appropriate arrangement for the collection of a blood sample as appropriate.
Disclaimer: Laboratory test results are NOT to be interpreted as a "stand-alone" item. Test results have to be interpreted after correlating with suitable clinical findings and additional supplemental information/tests. The meaning of your tests results will be explained by your healthcare providers, based on additional information you provide them.
